06:08 PM ET 02.08 | If NFL teams keep giving Tim Tebow shots to be an inspirational leader and motivator from inside the clubhouse, despite the risk of the media circus and subsequent implosion of the team (see the New York Jets), certainly there is a home for Ray Lewis to coach. "All of the guys that have played here come back often. Talk to players, and they are always welcome," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "Of course, Ray would be no less than that. We have talked about it. He knows he is always welcome. He has not expressed an interest to coach. I have asked him, and he is not interested. But we have talked about it." Ray is retiring so he can watch his son play at the University of Miami, so in a lot of ways, coaching doesn't make sense right now. He'd be just as absent coaching as if he played another season, thus defeating the purpose of him retiring.

He's signed for network money as a color commentator.

Isn't that racist?

Why is this even a story......they asked him and he said he is not interested.......no plot here.

I don't see how the Jets trading for Tebow has anything to do with Ray's plans for after football.

I think Ray Lewis might be pretty good at coaching, he should take a stab at it.
